Residents of Ofulonu in Nsukka, Enugu State have been gripped with shock following the mysterious death of an 8-year-old girl identified as Chiemerie Asadu.
Notice.Com.Ng gathered that the girl reportedly committed suicide Monday afternoon.
Sympathizers who trooped to the scene in their numbers stood speechless as nobody could adduce reason behind the alleged suicide, considering the age of the deceased.
A resident, who expressed utter shock over the incident told Notice.Com.Ng that she saw the girl full of life in the morning.
“I am terribly surprised because I I saw that girl playing with other children when I was going to the market in the morning.
“I wonder what will make a girl of eight to commit suicide. Another thing that surprises me is that the two legs of the victim are on the ground, which is not normal when one commits suicide, the legs should be hanging up.
“I urge the police and relevant security agencies to investigate that suicide, even the rope on the neck of the victim is not strong enough to kill her.
“If you look at that rope, you will understand what I am saying. So, I think there is a cover-up here; the police investigation will unravel the real circumstance behind the death”, she said.
Meanwhile, Mr David Ajibo said the victim, daughter of his brother in-law, was living with him.
As stated by him, “This girl has been staying with us since her father died. I am shocked; I don’t know what to say; only God knows what happened.
“She was hale and hearty when I left the house in the morning and I wonder what will make a small girl of eight to commit suicide”.
When contracted, the spokesman of the Enugu State Police Command, Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the incident to Notice.Com.Ng said “the police have commenced investigations into the sudden and unnatural death that occurred on 10/03/14 at about 3.20pm at Ofulonu Nsukka, where a little girl of about eight years hanged herself dead in the bathroom.
“Corpse of the deceased is now deposited at Bishop Shanahan Mortuary at Nsukka just as investigations are intensified to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident”.
